Nisargadatta Gita - Message of Nisargadatta Maharaj
with commentary by 'Pradeep Apte'


<< previous quote     next quote >>
Totally accept the knowledge I am as oneself and with full conviction and faith and firmly believe in the dictum I am that by which I know I am.

After fully understanding the I am, as a first step you have to accept that you are the knowledge I am in all its totality. Through practice, when this acceptance comes, what would happen? You would no more be an individual, gone would be the personality; you now would have reached the highest you possibly can. Remaining in this highest possible state of knowing that I am, the second step would follow when you would realize that there is someone who knows the I am. Till this realization comes you should at least firmly believe in the dictum I am that by which I know I am.
